Argius

a sculptor, was the disciple of Polycletus, and therefore flourished about 388 B. C. (Plin. Nat. 34.19.) Thiersch (Epochen, p. 275) supposes that Pliny, in the words "Argius, Asopodorus," mis-translated his Greek authority, which had Ἀργεῖος Ἀσωπόδωρος, " Asopodorus the Argive." But Argius is found as a Greek proper name in both the forms, Ἄργιος and Ἀργεῖος. (Apollod. 2.1.5; Aristoph. Eccl. 201.)
